Sen Harry Reid will be the main target of the Republican National Committee’s newest campaign (a series of robocalls) “hoping to nationalize Senate races across a slew of battleground states, arguing that each race will serve less as an individual contest and more as a referendum on the leadership of Reid.” Politico,
“The Nevada Democrat has become broadly reviled by Republicans this year, as he gleefully attacks the GOP as obstructionist and beholden to wealthy conservatives like Charles and David Koch.
“Reid has also largely ignored bills sent over from the House this year and sheltered vulnerable Senate Democrats from voting on contentious legislation proposed by the GOP. Now Republicans hope to use those examples to build a case against Reid and argue that his procedural chokehold is the reason for the Senate’s painful levels of gridlock.
“The only way to stop President Obama’s agenda and to get jobs bills out of Congress is to fire Harry Reid. And the way to fire Harry Reid is to support your Republican Senate candidate. It doesn’t matter who the Democrat candidate is. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for Harry Reid,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will say in a statement on Tuesday morning.”
